HSBC has announced that 69 branches are closing soon, just a year after it closed 82 other branches.
The bank says the majority of its users are changing the way they manage their money – and opting for digital forms of banking, something the Covid-19 pandemic sped up.
Jackie Uhi, the head of HSBC’s UK branches, said of the closures: ‘We know that the majority of our customers have a preference to do much of their day-to-day banking online or via mobile.
‘So we’re removing locations where we have another branch nearby, and where there is a significant reduction in customers using face-to-face branch servicing.
‘This will enable us to invest in locations where our customers are continuing to utilise the branch network, including updating technology and refurbishing branches.’
